Yeah, dumb kids we were, INTJMom!
"If it feels good, do it." Good grief, that was a fine bit of advice and probably responsible for some of those little aches and pains.
I don't even like the word "surrender" used in that context. I prefer "accept." I'm sure if I surrender I'll be in that wheelchair way too soon.
A friend I graduated with told me recently that "Sixty is the new forty." I think with modern medicine and more information we aren't aging as severely as people did when I was young.
When I was a kid people in their sixties were grey, some toothless, walking with canes and bent over. My peers hike, travel, play golf. Are pretty vital and active.
(Oh no. I just had a thought about a lawsuit a few years back. Willy Nelson hurt his back badly in bed with a woman. LOL!)
